Monday Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Little Miss Somersault (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: B-52s (music round)

Right – I know I’ve screwed this up twice already this month but tonight’s music round at the Safari DEFINITELY INCLUDES The B-52s:

The song is called ‘Butter Bean’ and doesn’t start in this video until 8’35” but I’ve linked to this video so you can see a couple of their other songs. They really are the greatest band in pop history.

I could give you some long explanation about how I got this totally wrong on two separate occasions but that would be tedious. It’s got something to do with shelves and months. I’ll leave it at that.

Anyway, come to the quiz, especially the Safari cos its always a bit quieter there which is a shame cos its an ace boozer.

##########################

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double (and people do).

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

I might be on the bike tonight but if I’m getting a taxi  I’m always happy to give you a lift between the two places. Free of charge!

Monday Night Pub Quiz

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Edelweiss (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Brian May (music round)

Fringe finished. I think it might be the fireworks tonight so quiz may be quiet – but hopefully I’ll see you in the nice cosy pub where everyone is your friend. Hopefully you’ll see the wisdom in attending the quiz instead of taking your chances with the sea of hooligans and wanks that populate these large outdoor events. And it might rain.

Mmmmm, quiz.

Mind you, if you do eschew the quiz tonight, you won’t have to listen to the fifteen second clip of this absolute steamer that’s in the Safari Lounge music round tonight.

Amazingly, all the youtube comments say they love it. But I remember it being an advert to sell Ford Escorts. Tainted.

Occasionally, May turns up in Dead Pool. It’s the last few days of August so I am collecting names for September. Get your entry in tonight.

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

Monday Night Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£150. Cheat: Thailand (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (music round)

A hundred and fifty quid? You could get a new kitchen for that probably, I don’t know, I’m not really in the market for kitchens.

Here’s the cheat source for Safari:

This is the straightest white man rock and roll possible. The sort of band that people like when they’re terminally afraid of showing any love for Eurovision pop just in case they catch the gay.

Doesn’t make the tune bad though, it’s nice. Good rock and roll. But don’t forget to bop to the pop too.

Rock makes you strong. But pop makes you great.

By the way 2018 deck of Cunto Cards are back in stock so stop me and buy one if you want to get in on the action.

Why Is Phil Collins “The Beast” Anyway?

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£100. Cheat: Depeche Mode (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Phil Collins (pic round)

Hey! A hundred quid at the Brass Monkey on Leith Walk tonight. Come and win.

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, it’s Depeche Mode:

I grew up listening to Depeche Mode and was always pretty sure this song is about either class, control or BDSM, I’ve never been quite sure which. This is the first time I’ve ever seen the video and it does nothing at all to clear things up.

I guess it’s about all three. Didn’t expect to see Greenham Common in there though…

So why is Phil Collins (star of tonight’s Safari Lounge picture round) known as THE BEAST?

Well, it’s a list of alleged crimes which include but are not limited to:

  • Taking all the money from Live Aid, thus…
  • Ensuring that Africa still starves to this day.
  • Divorcing second wife BY FAX.
  • Controlling the world’s tsunamis from his underwater headquarters in a lake in Switzerland.
  • Riding his bike through red lights.
  • Conducting a covert war against the poor of the Brazilian favelas using his own private security force.
  • Murdering orphans
  • Created Ebola virus in his Swiss lab
  • etc

What a bastard. In fact even if half of these things are true, it would still make him a Cunto, and that explains why he’s in the 2018 deck of Cunto Cards.

Monday Night Quiz Action and Reaction

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Chicks On Speed (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Liverpool (pic round)

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, it’s Chicks on Speed:

I’ve always liked this song but I’ve just watched three or four Chicks on Speed videos on youtube and have decided I don’t like them as much as I thought I did.

They seem to be trying very very hard to be “ART” and “EDGE”.

I’ve not read about them and this might be a completely baseless judgement but I reckon they look like they started off life rich and, using this background platform of stability, are able to pursue “art” and shun commercialism.

Nothing inherently wrong with that. Fair play. But I think I prefer the commercial equivalent: something like Lady Gaga. It feels more honest.

Anyway, I’m sure Chicks on Speed don’t need me to validate them. I’m sure they’re enjoying their level of the fame monster just fine.

And they’re probably still more famous and more commerical than me, your favourite Edinburgh quizmaster.

Come to the quiz tonight and validate me. Win money.

Monday is great and brilliant and I should have some Cunto cards with me tonight just in case you’re looking for the best gift of 2018.

Monday Glory, Possibly Tragedy

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Argentina (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Chase & Status (music round)

Monday is brilliant. Great people in great pubs doing great things to each other before, during and after the quiz.

The quiz is just part of it. The whole experience is what counts. Just the same as going to church is more than just the communion. More than just the hymns…

Speaking of music, here’s the cheat info relating to the Safari tonight: a music clip from Chase and Status. It’s not a hymn…

There’s some fairly heavy make up in that video. It’s like Arbroath in 1987.

Hey. Did you know there is a page on Wikipedia for Kings and Queens who are/were LGBT?

Monkey Monday, Safari Monday

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Suede (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Nasturtium (pic round)

Monday gives you two chances for socialization and the furtherance of your circle.

The Brass Monkey Leith offers luxury consumer drinking facilities on modern, spacious Leith Walk.

The Safari Lounge offers a bijou boozing niche in up-and-coming Abbeyhill.

Both properties feature a great big bar, stacked with booze, excellent food and bathrooms.

Here’s the cheat info: a music clip from the music round at Brass Monkey Leith tonight…

It’s Suede and every note is brilliant. Cannae argue with Suede.

By the way, my side project is CUNTO. It’s amazing and you can buy a pack now.

Who’s in the deck? Richard Branson and 41 other complete and utter Cuntos. That’s who.

Sensational Jackpot Monday Night Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: 200. Cheat: Chocolate Puma (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £210. Cheat news: Othello (pic round)

Absolutely loads of money on offer at the quizzes tonight. The kind of money that gets Warren Buffet greased and Elon Musk hard.

Be part of it. Say you were there and be ready to tell the story about the time you went to both Monday night Dr Paul quizzes, won both jackpots and cleared more than £400 in Great British Pounds.

Here’s the video for a clip from tonight’s music round at the Brass LEith. It’s from 2001 and sounds EXACTLY like 2001. I think it perhaps THE most typical track of 2001. Even more so.

Except may Rui Da Silva, DJ Pied Piper and Roger Sanchez

The first of those three links is particularly 2001 because it’s introduced by Gail Porter and she references Jamie Theakston.

I think the sample in the Rui Da Silva song is Spandau Ballet, but I can’t quite place it.

If I wasn’t a quizmaster I think I’d produce electronic dance music, mainly built around samples of Spandau Ballet, Simple Minds, and Duran Duran songs of the early 1980s. It sounds like a decent way to make money.

It also sounds like an easy way to make fuck all money. I think there are quite a few procuders of electronic dance music based on old pop. I think it’s a buyers’ market.

So I’ll probably stick to quizzes just now. And of course, Cunto.

What is Cunto? Cunto is like Top Trumps but the deck is stacked with utter cunts. It’s my new invention and you can buy a pack now.

Cunto
Cunto

 

Who’s in the deck? Donald Trump and 43 other prime cunts. That’s who

This Is Monday – The Day Your Life Turns Around

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: Feeder (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Ulysses (pic round)

So, another great jackpot at the Safari and, as usual the crowd will be thin. Monday night in Abbeyhill is not exactly Saturday afternoon in Shanghai, if you know what I mean.

The odds are ever in your favour.

MEanwhile, here’s the cheat clip, giving you one of the answers in tonight’s Brass Monkey Leith music round. It’s Feeder…

People sometimes talk about trivia and quizzing in terms of “useless knowledge”. I ususally disagree, usually I think that getting into the world of trivia opens up routes of curiosity that leads towards better understanding of the world and ultimately more wisdom.

However, there are counter-examples. Check this sentence I found on the Wikipedia page devoted to this single by Feeder:

Despite reaching the top 5 and equaling "Buck Rogers" chart placing, it would become the smallest selling top 5 single of the 2000s, with sales of 19,400.[citation needed]

Great stuff. Thank, Wiki.

By the way, £150 tonight at the Safari. That’s tasty.

Monday Night Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh: Leith and Abbeyhill

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: Captain And Tennille (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: Seal (pic round)

The song in the Brass Monkey Leith music round is by Captain & Tennille who were a big deal in the seventies.

For a while in the 1990s I was right into their schmaltz, I collected their albums.

Now in the modern era I can watch them perform on youtube, live and direct from the actual 1970s.

In true 70s TV superstar style, they always looked a bit wasted. I don’t really know what Quaaludes are but I bet they were on Quaaludes. These are drugs that always get mentioned in 70s rock life-fail biography paragraphs.

They were a couple and were married for 39 years and then she left him. He had some disease along the lines of Parkinson’s. She felt the marriage was a sham and only really there to please the fans.

I read so many of these stories when researching questions. Sometimes I feel sad for the participants and other times I feel nothing. I feel sorry for Tennille and the Captain. Maybe it’s because I like their hits. Perhaps I’m that shallow.
